Hi, I'm Minerva Vazquez and welcome to my kitchen. As a Personal Chef and Baker, I love to make desserts .And this is one of the cutest things that I can show you on how to dress up a dessert. I'm making candied strawberries. First of all, I like to start by making my simple syrup and this is only half a cup of sugar, mix with half a cup of water. You boil it until the sugar dissolves and then let it cool down completely. Then, you'll get like a, you know, a sugary water, that's all you're going to get, which is a simple syrup. Let it cool completely before you use it. Now, I'm going to slice my strawberries, I'm going to slice, I don't know, maybe, depending on how much you need, but right now, I'm just making six and I'm going to slice them thinly. Okay. The bottom and then that's it. Okay. And you want to use parchment paper because they're going to stick; remember that we're using sugar here and they're going to stick. They look really cute, absolutely cute and you're going to love the dessert that I'm going to show you. This is great for, for even breakfast. Okay. Now, once I have all these beauties sliced, I'm going to show you what to do, which is very simple. Okay. Now, we're done and I'm going to, I'm going to get a fork to dip them in my simple syrup. You can take a couple of them at the same time; placing them on top of your parchment paper. Now, make sure that you make enough of this because trust me, whoever is around you, they're going to grab a couple of these strawberry chips. I call them chips because they're so thinly sliced. Oops! Now, you can put them on top of cupcakes, they look really cute on top of cupcakes. They make a great presentation. "Wrap it up and see how everything when you put in the oven." Okay. Now, we're going to put it in the oven at 200 degrees for about two hours. Make sure that you check them after two hours that they still look red. Okay. So, see you later. Alright, well, these are my candied strawberries. As you can see, they have shrunk just a little bit, but that's okay, that's perfectly fine. They're still kind of red looking, the borders are just a little bit of darker, but they're perfectly fine, okay, ready to use. Now, this is what I'm going to do; I'm going to recycle part of the cakes that I have done before. This is the top that, of one of my cakes and what I have done, I took this little cute cup and I cut circles out of it. Okay. And now, I'm going to take some whipped cream and let it go on the bottom of my cup. Then, I'm going to put one of this little cake discs inside. It's pretty cool, huh? Just put it just like that. And then some more whipped cream to make it like a sandwich and then another disc right there; put more strawberries. Isn't that cute? I love to do this kind of stuff because it's so easy and it look so nice. I'm using one of this ice cream scoops; this is the small one, as you can see. And then of course, I'm going to take some of these beauties and you can put it right on top, just like that. Take the, the smaller ones, okay. Take like three and voila, that's all she wrote. Okay. Here's to you, a beautiful dessert, very easy to make and it didn't take long. Again, this is Minerva Vazquez with strawberry candied. Enjoy!.
